Life is happier when you do something that you love. My name is Katie, I enjoy swimming in the summer and skiing in the winter, and sewing (almost) all of the time. I co-wrote Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Blocks, which was published in 2013.
More recently, I have moved from Alexandria, VA to Portland, OR to Salt Lake City, Utah, all in the space of 8 months. I c0-hosted the Summer Sampler 2016, which was so much fun, and I love the combination of vintage and modern in quilting. I sell quilting patterns and very occasionally teach classes.
I love color and hiking and flowers in the spring. I love taking my kids on adventures, especially of the outdoor variety, and buying fabric. I do not love buying clothes, which makes no sense, because, fabric!
Thanks for stopping by, and please send me a note or leave me a comment if you have any questions.
